Segregation remains an issue in school districts throughout the country
from Education World
Even though school segregation under law was left behind in the middle of the 20th century, many of the country's schools remain segregated, both economically and racially. It's not a problem strictly in the Deep South either — though Alabama schools are guilty of it — but can be found in schools from New York City all the way to California. In the 1950s, when the Supreme Court handed down its ruling in Brown v. Board of Education and the desegregation process in U.S. schools was put underway, it was a step in the right direction. Slowly but surely schools across the country have begun sliding backwards to becoming more segregated with 37 percent of our nation's schools being almost entirely one-race schools.
